Calvin on Abortion

From John Calvin's Commentaries on the Last Four Books of Moses, Vol. 3, pp. 41-42:
If it seems more horrible to kill a man in his own house than in a field, because a man's house is his place of most secure refuge, it ought surely to be deemed more atrocious to destroy a fetus in the womb before it has come to light.
